Thirty-one year-old comedian Bobcat Goldthwait sets fire to his chair during a taping of The Tonight Show. Although host Jay Leno is furious with him for the stunt, he is not banned from appearing on the show, and is soon inviting back as a guest. However, he is tried and convicted for premeditated arson, for which he has to record PSAs for the fire marshal.

Transiting Saturn is conjunct Goldthwait’s natal Jupiter in Pisces, indicating strict repercussions for an error in judgment. Transiting Jupiter is conjunct natal Neptune in Scorpio, square natal Saturn with the South Node in Aquarius, signifying a stunt falling amiss of an artist’s exaggerated reach.
